August Break 2011 - Day 14

I woke up to three kids AND a giant dog in my bed this morning. It was quite lovely :) We hung out there for awhile and had some very interesting conversations. Then the dog started walking all over us and happily licking everybody so we decided to get up.

I made the kids some breakfast and then took my giant cup of coffee out onto the veranda to enjoy the morning air and sweep the cobwebs out of my brain.
The dog and I played fetch for awhile with her slobbery chewy rope thing.
After lunch we hopped in the car and drove into the city. I decided that THIS year I would make a point of buying school supplies early instead of waiting until the last minute like I usually do. I got almost everything on the list and left there one happy mama. I dropped the kids off at their dad's and then ran a few more errands. It was a lovely afternoon for everybody :)

We grabbed Blizzards for the car ride home and the kids fell into a sugar coma shortly afterwards. Road trips are great - especially when the kids are sleeping instead of slapping each other and then whining to me about it. 
I pulled over a few times to take pictures. The sun was pouring through the clouds and it was pretty spectacular. 
I need to learn how to fly a small aircraft AND take pictures. I think the view would be much better way up in the sky.
The kids are all sleeping soundly which means its finally relax time for me. I thought this moment would never come....

  1. Love that you have a "veranda". Somehow, that just sets a good tone for things... ;)
